Paul Verlaine articulates the drying leaf
Beautiful poem Patti ❤️
A poignant poem but it captures a mood for keeping on...embracing the moments to come
Nice I love Autumn 🍂 my favourite season I hope to see the end of it in NYC 🙂.
Sorry again for your loss babe 😽
beautiful and poignant poem and the reading echoes this....thank you so much.
I remember shocking the English teacher when at 16 I wrote that walking on autumn leaves sounded like crunching bones. French poetry was my jam in those days and heck, I stand by the observation. Thanks, Verlaine and Patti.
Beautiful poem by Paul Verlaine and read by you lovingly. Keep tramping into the great Autumn landscape, gathering the beautiful memories of the past, taking in the beauty of the present and looking toward the wild future*~~*
Dear Patti, Tonight I sang kareoke for the first time in 12 years. I was so humiliated by my last attempt, not only did I completely botch a song I loved and thus could never enjoy listening to it again(Mercedes Benz by Janis), but I had a domestic violence issue going on all those years ago. My then husband (now ex) was actively texting me manipulating threats of self-harm while I had been out that night. That night has been one of the peak points of humiliation in my life.
Tonight I stopped at a small local bar. There were only maybe 8 people there. I walked up and requested Dancing Barefoot, and sang it. I didn't do half bad either. I feel so redeemed from that terrible night 12 years ago which has convinced me I could only fail. Thank you for beautiful music. Thank you for being a part of my discovery path.
May you travel well... all your loved ones are with you.
Thanks for reading the poem for us. Safe travels and I hope you have good times with good friends while away and also some time for yourself and lots of walks through autumn leafs!
Ps: the botanical gardens are absolutely beautiful in autumn if you are still in Berlin now (there’s a Asian corner in the arboretum with lots of very pretty shrubs and trees… one Japanese tree also really smells amazing - well I’ve never been to Japan so to me it’s always very special! - https://www.bgbm.org/node/2299
This is in German but you get the pictures. You may know the gardens already but it’s worth going again and again and personally autumn is my favourite for it. It’s balm for the soul.
Used to go a lot right after wirk and on lunch break when I worked nearby.)
Hola comrade Patti...please, please your soul and compose musical score for these divine inspirations. blessings to everyone dave p
Beautiful and appropriate X
I did not know that Verlaine poem. It is so beautiful and quiet and haunting. But somehow, along the the haunting, I felt somewhat comforted, too. If the leaf blows, things are still moving, as is their wont. And autumn has its melancholy beauty. Thank you. Safe travels! 💜
Beautiful. Thank you for your reading.
